Mathieu K. Abonnenc devotes his work to the forgotten or marginalised areas of recent history, figures and events associated with the 20th century’s struggles for emancipation of identity. On the basis of investigations and documents, he attempts to deconstruct the nature of representations of the geographical ‘Other’ in particular.
